In lead track off "Mean Love," Sinkane a.k.a. Ahmed Gallab’s soulful vocals glide along a wave of electronic Afrobeat, providing enough groove to power a small country. The song’s soundscape seems to beam directly from its creator’s musical inner monologue while still capturing Brooklyn’s intimate, melting pot quality. "How We Be" reclaims the ambiguous "world music" label by feeling well-traveled. The fact that something this textured is totally dance-worthy is a bonus.
